Showy Toothwort.  One of the Cardamine species formerly placed in the genus Dentaria with thick molar-like rhizomes.  This will slowly make a very rewarding clump in the shade garden with 5-fingered leaves which spawned the species name of pentaphyllos.  Good display of dark pink flowers in spring that blends well with many of the Anemone nemorosa varieties and frankly just about everything else in the shade garden.  It is very comfortable in nearly any social situation as long as it is shaded.  Native to Europe, notably in Slovenia and Croatia.  Quite hardy.
